Disabled person’s Council Tax band reduction
Who can get a Disabled person’s band reduction
If you or another person you live with has a disability, you may be able to receive a discount on your Council Tax bill.
The property must be the main home of at least 1 person with a disability. This can be an adult or a child and it doesn’t have to be the person responsible for paying the Council Tax.
How much you can get off your bill

If your property is currently in bands B to H, your Council Tax will be reduced to the band below.
If your property is in band A, your Council Tax bill will be reduced by one ninth of the band D charge.
